Notes on Fandango, Stacy Keibler, WWE Films, and more



- As ridiculous as it may sound, the Fandango Revolution has kicked in
although how long it will last remains to be seen. The strong online
support has catapulted the song to the top charts on iTunes in the US, UK,
and Canada as well on Amazon. WWE has made a ton of money with purchases
of the song and hopefully, the composer/producer of the song Jim Johnston
is receiving some kind of royalties or a pay bump for his effort. Four
days after International fans put the artist formerly known as Johnny
Curtis on the map with their sing alongs, it’s now in WWE’s hands to give
him the chance and up to him to take the ball and run with it. In the
meantime, a funny exchange on Twitter between a fan of England Premier
League club Everton (football/soccer) and Fandango resulted in a reply
from the @Everton account. Fandango asked, “Who’s @everton ever beat?”
saying he never even heard of them, adding “Hockey team?” at the end while
replying to a fan’s question. The official Twitter account of Everton
replied to Fandango, telling him that they have a rich history and the
club would be happy to welcome him to their home – Goodison Park – to tell
him more and “maybe even play your theme song.” A fan quickly replied back
telling @Everton that they didn’t say that a few hours ago when they
refused to play his song when they were requested to do so for tomorrow.
“To clarify, we won’t be playing it in the stadium tomorrow,” Everton
said. HAH! Fans in New Jersey sang the song in the arena, in the hallways
of the IZOD Center, in the parking lot, on the buses, on the train, and
even honking their cars in rhythm with the song. (thanks to Colin Vassallo)
